DERBY >> The Board of Education this week hired the son of its chairman to a teaching position at Derby High School — a move some say violates the board’s own policy about hiring of family members.
Scott Marcucio, a Derby resident and son of longtime board Chairman Ken Marcucio, was hired as a social studies teacher during Wednesday’s school board meeting. The board voted 5-1 in favor of Marcucio getting the job. Board member Jim Gildea cast the sole dissenting vote.
According to board policy, listed under ‘personnel-certified/non-certified: ‘nepotism: employment of relatives,’ section 4212.8. “No member of the immediate family (spouse, civil union partner, child, parent, sibling, or household member) of a Board of Education member shall be appointed to a full-time position in the school district.”
However, under that same policy, there is a provision that states “A spouse or civil union partner, or child of a Board of Education member may be employed for limited term or short-term employment on a competitive basis among persons who are eligible.”
